Another trip to Cannock Chase today , the weather forecast is not great yet again , but will be ok for the most part . arriving at about 9 o'clock its just a short walk into the woods to the large fallen trees where the Nuttys come down to feed :)
the first thing I'm going to do is put out a few broken peanuts in the thick moss that's on one of the trees nearby , a favourite spot for them. it has only been a minute or so and two arrive above me and come down immediately to pick up the food .
Look at this one , cheeky bird has found the peanuts i stuffed into a hole in the dead tree about 15 ft away , it must have been watching me put them in as i arrived lol
I have managed to get a portrait as it landed on the wood above the hole :) beautiful colours
Mollster is quite happy watching me from behind.
A stump on the dead tree has also had peanuts stuffed into the bark, quite hard to try slow down the "theft" lol the light is really nice now , shining through the trees at a low angle.
got lucky with these two images!
i have watched them landing on this stump for ages now, but its very difficult getting good sharp images as they are such fast little birds.
I have just noticed this one in a large tree above me
The sun is higher now and giving different light to the backgrounds , lighting up the moss on a tree behind which looks quite nice .
That will be my final image for the day , the sun is being blocked by trees now and this area is getting a bit dark. its been a good morning shooting and watching these fascinating little birds .
